Title : Check and Double-check: An Unknown Vision Cycle by a Religious Woman from the Low Countries [The text presents three visions revealed to an unidentified religious woman, possibly associated with the "Devotio Moderna." The visions were written down by an unknown cleric who was careful to explain that word came first through the woman's confessor and that the visions were approved by the confessor's superior who then ordered the author to record the visions. Scheepsma argues that the woman's scope of concerns was much smaller than Alijt Bake's or Jacomijne Coster's, two other visionary women associated with the Windesheim Chapter, but the male clerics involved still approached the three visions with reticence and emphasized the message of obedience over self will.
